There will be further discussions over whether to tweak Formula 1’s regulations in a bid to bring engine manufacturers closer together in terms of performance.
It is understood that the motion was tabled in the wake of the Renault power unit – which supplies Alpine – having fallen behind its competitors.
The matter was discussed during Friday’s meeting of the F1 Commission.
“In relation to Power Units, at the start of this regulations cycle it was agreed with the Power Unit Manufacturers that there would be a possibility for adjustment of PU performance from 2023 onwards in order to avoid a significant performance difference being locked in for an extended period,” read a statement.
“The FIA has been analysing the PU Performance of the cars during the first half of 2023, and concluded that there is one such notable performance gap between competitors.
“On the basis of the commitment of the PU Manufacturers, and of the performance differences reported above, the F1 Commission discussed ways to remedy this discrepancy.
“The Power Unit Manufacturers represented at the Commission agreed to give a mandate to the Power Unit Advisory Committee to consider this topic and bring proposals back to the Commission.”
During Friday’s meeting it was also confirmed that 2024 pre-season testing will take place from February 21 to 23, in Bahrain, ahead of the opening round in the same country a week later.
There were additionally updates presented regarding the 2026 Formula 1 car specifications, with the FIA analysing the most effective ways to reduce the size and weight of the cars.
Work in the Financial Advisory Committee will continue in order to discuss Capital Expenditure and closing a discrepancy between teams with different levels of infrastructure in order for facilities to be upgraded outside of the cost cap.
